Don't forget to notify the water supplier

Have you bought a house and moving to a new address? Simply notify your water supplier that you are moving (then notify the water supplier in your new region). Most of the time, this can be done online.

Are you renting a house? Often, your landlord will have made arrangements. If not, notify the water supplier in your (new) region.
